glowan is it a fox news political analyst and dow, a former advisor to president clinton. doug, you first. what changed after the debate for the democrats. >> what changed the inhe have tiblty of president obama and showing the polls and reuters and rasmussen showing a close race or even a slight romney advantage, as in the rasmussen poll, but bottom line, president obama has got to get back to his core message of fiscal discipline and social compassion. and the governor romney is is an out of the mainstream extremist, he didn't deliver that on tuesday and he lost as a result. >> jamie: angela, what's the road map for republicans over the next 30 days. >> status quo. mitt romney, no question, that debate was a game changer, but jamie, a debate doesn't win an election, it sets the tone. he has to keep performing, keep talking about what he will do to create a better america and are you better off than you were four years ago. and we have all of these poll numbers dealing with swing states, but the polls that count, would you go to the poll and vote and i believe that people are going to vote the
of ours. >> gregg: doug is live in delaware where residents are anxiously preparing for sandy? >> it is basically here right now. winds are gusting probably about 30 miles an hour. gusting a bit more than that. gust comes along and knocks you off your feet a little bit. this is shaping up in this area as a classic storm coming out of north-northeast. it is typically in this region. nor'easters cause more damage than hurricanes. it's called the ash wednesday storm of 1962, johnf. kennedy was president. hundreds of buildings were destroyed in this area, literally thousands of buildings were badly damaged. president kennedy declared a disaster area. because of that and characteristics of this storm so closely mirror that, the governor of delaware has called for a mandatory evacuation all people are suppose to that out of the beach by 8:00 p.m. tonight. by our perusal of the beach a lot of people are not heeding that advice. we a that you sau a couple people step in the surf. authorities got them out of the waves. a little while ago i saw a woman running down the beach with a todd
that point forward. at the bottom of the hour doug schoen along with pat caddell to discuss the political implications and why they say we can expect this to be a critical event for the final presidential debate coming this monday. you can see that right here. coverage begins monday night 8:55 eastern time. join me, bret baier. it happens monday night right here on the fox news channel. i cannot promise ... bret will be inside the debate hall with this debate. i will be in the alley talking like this. hope you will be with us. new numbers out on the growing financial burden american college students are facing. a report shows student loan debt is up and it's becoming a major issue on the campaign trail with each candidate offering their own plan for relief. trace gallagher has that story. >> reporter: the big fear is you have a lot of students looking at student debt. they are saying they are going to skip college all together. according to the institute of college access and success it says that 66% of last year's college grads walked away with an average of $26,600 in debt. that's up 5%
now, doug schoen and pat caddell, also a fox news contributor and former pollster for jimmy carter. i want to start with these ohio numbers because, because there was also a poll out that said it was tied at 47, and ppp, a democratic-leaning firm, released a poll showing obama up just one point in ohio. do you believe that it's a tied race in ohio, doug? >> i do. i think the fox news poll last week had it three, and i think pat and i both believe that the momentum in the race, the clear momentum is moving to mitt romney, and ohio which is probably both a bellwether and the key to the election, has been moving slowly, but it's moved about five or six points in the last week or so, and bottom line that makes this race dead even with all the momentum in governor romney's direction. megyn: the ppp poll that showed the president up by just one in ohio apparently had a sampling, a democrat sampling advantage of 8%, and earlier it was a democratic advantage of four. so the president is showing, you know, that he's doing worse even with more democrats in the sample in the tate of ohio, pat. w
unchanged from august. >> heather: doug, thank you. >> gregg: the price of a gallon of gasoline hitting an all time high in the state of california. according to aaa the average price for a gallon of regular in the golden state, 4.65 a gallon. that is up four cents from just yesterday. drivers in need of some help at the pump. >> i have nv seen this near this. >> it has gone up 52 cents. >> we had a refinery owned by exxon that had a power outage. >> they say temporary reduction in supply is giving the state the most expensive gasoline in the nation. >>> a dramatic jump of the cases of fungal meningitis outrage. according to cdc, 7 people are dead. now 91 cases in nine different states linked to contaminated steroid injections commonly used to treat back pain. elizabeth pran has more on it. >> reporter: those new numbers released, 19 cases. the cases are mostly in the state of michigan where 15 people have contracted the disease, seven more in virginia. a total of died in tennessee, michigan, maryland and virginia in just the last week. health experts say those people contracted a rare
caddell, fox news contributor and former pollster for jimmy carter, and doug schoen, a fox news contributor and former pollster for bill clinton. gentleman, is the race, doug, basically tied? >>doug: i believe so. but there is a "but." that is that the movement has been to governor romney. some of the more left-wing commentators have tried to suggest that there was a blip up for president obama after the debate. according to some of the polls, he won that. but, looking at all the polls, including the state polls, we are seeing the movement to the governor is clear. >>gregg: i am glad you brought up gallup and rasmussen. here is rasmussen, with romney up by to points and look at gallup tracking poll, pat, romney is up, as of 1:00 o'clock this afternoon, romney is up plus seven points. is that gallup poll accurate? or an outliar? >> i think it is an outliar because i have a problem with the seven-day seven day rollings because you are putting in 350 interviews which is margin of error at 15 points and each day you take one out. however, obama is -- i take gallup and rasmussen and
years of the saforeign policy. >> doug kelly is live with more. >> good morning. focus turned to foreign policy with governor romney delivering a major address at the virginia military institute offering his severest critique yet of the president leading from behind. >> hope is not a we can't support our friends in the milled east when our words are not backed up by these but spending is cut we have no trade agenda to speak of and it is not one of partnership but of pass civet. >>> speaking in san francisco yesterday president obama touted his decision to pull u.s. troops out of iraq and to pull them out of afghanistan by 2014. >>> governor romney has a different view. he sain a speech today he doubl down on that belief. said ending the war was a mistake. i disagree. bringing our troops home was the right thing to do. every brave american who wears the uniform of this country should know as long as i am commander-in-chief we will sustain the strongest military the world has ever known. >> romney said the root to moral war and potential attacks here at home is a politically pined retreat
. >> doug, kelly ann mentioned new hampshire and ohio and iowa and wisconsin. and so, so, obama's barely ahead in some of those state not at 50 percent. that is dangerous for the territory. >> it is and that's why you will see governor that obama is going to raise questions about romney next week because it is very hard if not impossible for him to get 50 percent. he has to discourage the undecided from voting for romney. that is a win for the president if they stay home. he will need tv effort and plus trying to persuade the undecided not to support romney. >> and governor, may i just add the states are significant for another reason. we look through the 2008 pris'm. in the states that we mentioned. obama carried wisconsin, iowa and new hampshire and ohio, certainly . but two short years later. a republican one state wide seat and in the case of wisconsin twov them and in the case of new hampshire. and so super seeding intervening factor is the 2010 election and model the turn out with a hybrid of 2008 and 10 where the issues are the same as in 2010; you are on to something you copele t
, meteorologist maria molina, and doug mcelway on the bach. >> we're tracking sandy, a hushing maximum sustained winds of 75 miles per hour and some things to note and we've been repeating that sandy from one to the other, expands about 800 miles and we're starting to feel the impacts cross portions of eastern pennsylvania, maryland, down through portions of delaware and mind you. the center of the storm is over 500 miles away from the new york city area, so we have time to go here, about 48 hours of time that we will be feeling the impacts across the the new york city area from sandy through at least early wednesday morning and some heavy rain is still falling across portions of the outer banks of north carolina, eastern parts of virginia and like i just mentioned some of the heavy rain picking up across eastern portions of pennsylvania. something else we're noticing with sandy, the wind is picking up. shy of 40 miles per hour across portions of long island, the new york city area, wind gusts shy of 30 miles per hour and strong winds as well across much of new jersey, atlantic city, seeing one
it to be presidential? a fair and balanced debate on that. monica, doug schoen, coming up. >> they have been unable to lay out a agenda to what to do to help america. they have been unable to defend and describe what they do to get our economy going again. that is with a president out of ideas and out of excuses, november 6th, you can make sure you put him out of office. [cheers and applause] bill: fox news has obtained more internal e-mails. this one sent by the state department to members of the obama administration. now this document describes an attack on a shelter about a mile away from the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya, under mortar attack. here is secretary of state hillary clinton downplaying some of those e-mails a bit yesterday at the state department. >> you know, posting something on facebook is not in and of itself evidence and i think it just underscores how fluid the reporting was at the time and continued for some time to be. bill: senator john mccain is one of three members of the senate who just sent a letter to the white house asking for more questions. member of the senate a
up as well. right now more than 45,000 are in the dark. doug luzader is live in delaware. doug what's going on there? >> good morning. you see the wreckage from the storm. this is going to be a big cleanup. you talk about the power outage. we have not lost power here. that's the good news. you are right. a lot of places along the delaware beach area have been hit. we have an issue with beach erosion. you see this here right between the boardwalk and the beach where a lot of it has given away. this is something that they are very sensitive about takes a long time to build this up and recreate this. they will have to go through a lot of repairs here to get everything back as it was. the good news it's the end of the tourist season. there were about 50,000 people in this area told to evacuate. some of them may start coming back today. we will see. the rain hazlet up. we may see more of that after all is said and done. the decision local officials make about reopening roads. some of them were flooded. roads were official closed before the storm. they may reopen today. we will see what t
.c. with more on this is doug luzader. hi, doug. >> unless you live in one of those battle ground states, you are probably not going to see much of the candidates at least not in person over the next 13 days as this campaign reaches a fever pitch. you can add another 5,000 miles or so to the odometer of air force one today. as president obama passes back on board. as usual this may come down to ohio the president was in dayton yesterday. >> we know where they need to be not here not my where. we have made real progress. we have to build on that progress. we can't go back to when god t into this mess. that's why i am running for second term as president of the united states. >>> the obama campaign says the 20 page booklet will help close the deal. president holding it up there. trying to refute the charge to the romney campaign that there is no plan. mitt romney meantime heads to n nevada and iowa after big rallies in colorado yesterday including one in red rock. >> what you are seeing from the obama campaign is an incredibly shrinking campaign. the president is out of ideas. he is out of excu
live team coverage. doug luzader is in delaware. first we start with maria molina for the latest on sandy's path. >> good morning everyone. we are still tracking sandy who has actually intensified over the last efrl hours and now have maximum sustained wind at 85 miles per hour. earlier in the show we mentioned on the western side of the storm we will be seeing significant snow across parts of the state of west virginia and western portions of the state of virginia. that snowfall has already begun falling out here we are talking about 2-3 feet of snow out here. interesting impact further off toward the west well inland away from sandy. shy of 400 miles southeast of the area. we have rain bands moving along shore across parts of delaware. the area in red has very heavy rain. we could see flooding very shortly. 10 inches of rain will be possible across portions of the mid atlantic. flooding a big concern. the wind is also starting to pick up across parts of long island. wind gusts shy of 40 miles per hour. the dark shading in blue wind gusts over 50 miles per hour. we are seeing th
island new york. doug mckelway is in delaware. we begin with rick leventhal at point pleasant beach, new jersey. good evening, rick. >> bret, the wind is ridiculous at this hour. at #:00, i clock wind gust at 57 miles per hour. it feels like it's 70 to 80 now. i'm hanging on the rail or i probably, well, you can see the street. the ocean is merging with the ocean avenue. if you look to the left, not sure if you can tell how ferocious the winds are. they're in the 12 to 15 to 20-foot range. at times curling and crashing over the dunes to bring water to point pleasant. this town was evacuated yesterday. most of the residents heeded warnings. all of the beach communities up and down the new jersey shore were evacuated. some people chose not to leave. that included atlantic city, new jersey, where a section of the boardwalk washed away. emergency workers were rescuing some residents with light boats and -- lifeboats and high water vehicles throughout the day. at this point, the governor told people if you are still home, don't try to get out. hunker dune try to ride the storm out. the storm
. doug luzader is live from washington. >>> it kind of borders on the surge. these guys start heaping praise on one another. to hear the president tell it as he did last night mitt romney his opponent has skills he can't match when it comes to debating. the top political ad viseor piles it on. >> challengers do well in this debate. >> presidented owe bhaum is a gifted speaker with a proven debate track record. the loan exception may be new jersey governor chris christie the only campaign surrogate on either side was willing to predict his guy would win. >> every time he has come through on the debate performing we are going to be shaking our heads saying it's a brand new race. >> it you have one event each week the last one this date in october. >>> doug luzader thank you so much from washington. wednesday was a big talker. that's what presidential nominee paul ryan is talking about. >> sitting down with fox news sundays ryan telling chris what he thinks romney needs to do at the first debate to win the white house. >> he needs to give the american people the choice we are offering. t
the presidential election new fox news polls show good news for mitt romney in a key swing state. doug luzader is live in washington with a look at those numbers and how president obama is trying to reverse his flag. >> good morning. let's start quickly with a real clear politics aying of polls. gives mitt romney the edge. the edge has grown just a little bit in fact since yesterday. that has the president running to catch up. it is tough to compete with the kind of tools a president, an incumbent president can bring to bear. this is air force one rolling up to a campaign rally almost used as a prop. this is something i am not sure we have seen before. but this was the last stop after a marathon day in the campaign trail where the president lobbed repeated attacks against mitt romney's plan for the economy. >> we have been running around saying he has a five point plan for the economy. turns out it's a one-point plan. folks at the very top get to play by a different set of rules than you do. >> let's take a look at just one swing state in particular to show the challenges that the president fa
on foreign policy a topic that has already sparked a lot of fireworks. >> joining us now is doug luzader. >> instead of standing on podiums or walking around one another on stage like the last debate we are going to be sitting at the same desk with one another. they are supposed to talk about foreign policy you know how this goes just about anything could come up. the tone tonight may be some what more subdued than we saw during the last debate when things got pretty heated. the president will no doubt try to question mitt rom niece readiness on the world stage. >> people want to know they have a strong steady hand in the oval office. they don't want someone who is reckless and who has been consistently wrong on foreign policy issues as governor romney has. >> romney may try to hit the president on the u.s. consulate attack on libya with questions about what the white house really knew about the attack in those early days. with the new report over the weekend with possible talks between the u.s. and iran over the nuclear program romney will likely question the president's support over is
of a concern for them. let's debate this doug schoen, former pollster for president clinton. monica crowley, radio talk show host. both are fox news contributors. good morning to you. let me show the poll one more time. 67% say it is troubling the first initial erroneous reports came out of the administration. 26% say not much of a concern. doug, is this an issue in the presidential election? >> absolutely it is a issue. when something is troubling it is not full voting issue. but the bottom line as we go into the vice-presidential debate and two presidential debates coming in the next two weeks, this is a huge concern for the obama white house, make no mistake and they're going to try to keep a troubling concern, troubling not totally political. not have it dominate the election. alisyn, most of all, not have it take over the final days of the campaign in a way that could be calamitous for the election. alisyn: monica, do you agree with doug, when people go into the voting booth, are they thinking about benghazi or thinking about their jobs and their gas tanks? >> obviously jobs and the ec
deputy assistant to george w. bush. and doug schoen a former pollster for bill clinton and a fox news contributor. none of you are women, i am and you're experts and we vote on the same things. dog, what do you make about this move? >> martha where your introduction went is exactly where i would begin. bottom line people are voting on the economy. the democrats have tried to make a so-called republican war on women, abortion, contraception, the centerpiece of the campaign, and bluntly it's not working. the gallop poll and other data is showing that women are moving directly to governor romney and they are showing that that movement is because of concerns about the economy. so bottom line, the economy triumphs social issues and that's what we are seeing right now. martha: let's fake a look at a couple of the polls you just mentioned before we bring you in, brad, so we can get your thoughts on them. the first one we have here is likely swing state voters, who would do a better job handling the deficit and the debt. you've got governor romney with a very comfortable margin there 52% over
devastated so many businesses. doug mckelway has the news. live tonight in golf shores, alabama. hey, doug. >> hey, shep. you know, two years since the worst he can logical disaster in u.s. history. the beaches here at gulf shores, alabama are absolutely pristine. the politics of the cleanup are anything but that one local congressman joe bonner saying it's the worst of chicago politics. closed door negotiations are underway in washington between the governor of all the gulf states. the justice department and bp oil to determine just how much bp should be fined. the fines will be huge, up to $20 billion. last june, an expectation of that windfall congress passed what they call the restore act which requires that 80% of that money be dispersed by local officials to compensate not just for he can logical damage but for economic damage, too. >> we were devastated. we were closed for the summer of 2010, which is our year. we are seasonal destination. >> but sources say that justice department negotiators are steering the finds through the national resources damage assessment which would requir
argue the numbers are down because people are just giving up. doug mcelway with details of the latest disagreement. doug? >> the controversy surrounding the release of the september unemployment numbers continues to it swirl after one of america's most respected ceos took to twin citieser to find up off this tweet. "unbelievable jobs numbers. these chicago guys will do anything. can't dewait so change numbers. peacing a torrent of criticism for the defeat. welch struck about the criticism of the number. >> who is participating. who is not working. who is trying to work but has dropped out. all of these things. it just raises the question i think there ought to be a good discussion about how this number is calculated. >> most analysts are dismissing welch's criticism as utter early without evidence while at the same time pointing out that the jobs numbers largely reflect an obama econom an obat has the economy still stuck in neutral. >> the policies that the president put in place actually made it worse. including the fact that obama care is causing small employers not to hire because
the most important one on campaign insiders, my partner, doug and i talked about this on sunday. i want to actual, we made a case that could be decisive because romney was so far down in the public image. more importantly, you know, sean, all of those numbers are very close. you can't say this -- the numbers have changed from what they were. there is more coming, potentially. more importantly, debates affect how you view the race and the candidate. romney's favorability has soared. he was upside down in favorability. even in the cbs poll, right after the post-pam of uncommitted voters, he went from 30% believing he cared about people to almost 53%, almost doubled it in 90 minutes. that's the movement that we care about. >> sean: listen, nobody's doubting -- i can -- with certainty say obama's going to show up. he's going to be aggressive. he is probably likely to over -- you know, go overboard. >> here's the obama narrative, simply, sean. fiattack governor romney as his campaign has, he drives up his negative and that improves his vote share. what his handlers are saying, you missed opp
. they hold the key to this election. joining us now we have doug and pat. guys, good to see you. >> good to say you. >> sean: there's the rasmussen swing poll, 50-46. here's the deal. minnesota, a 3-point race, michigan dead even, wisconsin dead even, pennsylvania close, ohio dead even, virginia close. what are we to make of this. >> oregon is moving to. >> sean: oregon is not going too to go with romney. >> i believe florida, north carolina, probably virginia have been con so consolidated for ro. new hampshire, leaning romney, the midwest, moving romney. the big question today is whether the news of the cleanup from the hurricane will be the one advantage that obama has to show him -- to show leadership. >> sean: look. i think the president is doing the right thing, but let's be honest here. it's a week before election. what is he going to do? >> whatever he can. >> whatever he can. with governor christie' governo, literally mhanna from heaven. >> so the guy that does nothing on benghazi. >> excuse me. my favorite. he's not there. he's missing in action. >> where is governor romney? thi

this morning as joe biden and paul ryan wait to take center stage. doug luzader is live with more. >> good morning. both are hitting into new numbers. this is the latest fox news poll asking specifically about the number two's. they are evenly matched sfargs favor ability numbers are concerned. look at this the unfavorable numbers. that's where joe biden has ground to make up tonight. paul ryan arrived at the scene of yesterday's debate. he was swarmed by supporters. earlier in the day in florida he admitted to having serves. >> i am looking forward to giving people a clear choice. >> joe biden has been on the stage many times before so sure it's a nervous situation because joe biden is one of the most experienced debaters we have in modern politics. but the achilles heel he has is president obama's record. >> joe biden arrived later this morning. he got advice from president obama last night who told abc world news that joe biden simply needs to be himself. >> joe just needs to be joe. congressman ryan is a smart and effective speaker. but his ideas are the wrong ones. >>> there are more
of that if mind we have coverage with rick on the northern shore of new jersey and doug is in delaware, first, we will get to where we are and where it is going. and janice dean, what do we expect? >> a hurricane will make landfall across coastal new jersey, probably south and central jersey in the next several hours and expected between 5:00 and 6:00 p.m. eastern at 90 miles per hour hurricane. it will be a hurricane when it lands. there was a suggestion the last several days that it could combine with another system and become a super storm hybrid but now we are in agreement it will be a hurricane when it makes landfall. there will be storm surge with high wind in excess of 90 and 100 miles per hour in populated areas. we are dealing with a storm southeast of new york city and the effects of the storm when it lands in new jersey, anywhere north to the center the storm will get the worst rainfall, the worst wind, and the worst storm surge on top of high tide and we will see waves 20' to 30' on top of the storm surge and tim occur in two or three hours in central emergency and bring written and s
would be going some place else. correspondent doug mckelway has the story from gulf shores, alabama. >> reporter: two years since the worst ecological disaster, the beaches are now pristine. some say the politics of the clean-up are not. >> chicago style politics at its worst. >> closed door negotiations undergo in washington between the governor of five gulf states justice department and b.p. oil to determine how much b.p. should be fined for damage. fines will be immense ranging from $4 billion to more than $20 million. last june, congress passed restore act to require 80% of the money be allotted by the local officials. >> devastating. we were closed for the summer of 2010. which is our year. we are a seasonal destination. we had just come off a major hurricane from building bubble bursting, came off the banking crisis and financial crisis. we were broke. >> sources close to the talks tell fox news justice department negotiators are ignoring the restore act and instead negotiating to steer the fines through nrda, the natural resources daniel assessment, which would require federa
. >> the candidates made it clear they have different visions for america's role around the world. doug luzader is life from washington with more. >> these two have the same goal in mind come september 6th -- november 6th. the president hoping to get momentum back. for people watching at home the split screen may have told the whole story the president no longer looking down as we saw through out a good portion of the first debate. instead he was looking directly at mitt romney at moments even looked like a glare. the president arguing our image in the world has improved. >> the world needs a strong america and it is stronger now than when i came into office. was wended the war in iraq we were able to refocus our attention not only on the terror threat but beginning the process in afghanistan. it allows us to refocus on alliances relationships that have been neglected for a decade. governor romney our alliances have never been stronger. >>> while the focus was on foreign policy discussions about china iran and libya mitt romney made a pivot to the weak economy. >> in order to be able to fulfill
of the stops. >> a few hours from now mitt romney will deliver a major foreign policy speech. doug is live with more. >> good morning guys. good to see you all. it is the home stretch all signs of this race is really tightening up. the swing state advantage the president had early last week has now evaporated largely after romney's strong de late last week. his weekend crowds were among the largest of the campaign rallies today. >> i am not convinced you will have a chance to hear his answers or nonanswers. now of course days later we are hearing his excuses and next january we will be watching him leave the white house for the last time. >>> as you said romney will have the swing state in lexington. in anticipation of that address the obama campaign releasing an ad that attacks his recent trip to europe and israel. >> reckless, amateurish that's what news media and fellow republicans called mitt romney's tour of england israel and poland. >>> last night at a celebrity rich fundraiser in los angeles he trumpeted what he believers are his own foreign policy successes. oo will oo four years
will candidates be working to gain the last minute support from voters? doug luzader has moren today's campaign event. >> good morning, doug. >> what a schedule for both of them. these were the stops yesterday. look how many were in play including we have highlighted california here not exactly a swing state but the president went there last night to appear on "the tonight show" where he talked about the importance of early voting. >> we should be thinking about ways to make it easier for folks to vote not to make it harder for folks to vote. that is why the early voting is terrific. in iowa i think 25 percent of the people have already voted in ohio folks already voting in a whole bunch of states. that is important for people who don't have as much flexibility on the job. >> the obama campaign is pushing this because they think they have a lead when it comes to early voting. the president is going to vote early today in chicago. take a look at real clear politics. nevertheless it shows momentum he has been building. he was in iowa before heading to ohio today. >> the commitment i want to get f
a great panel to talk about this. mark sanford is the former governor of south carolina. doug schoen is a former pollster to bill clinton, and monica crowley is a fox news contributor. here is a central issue to this. this $716 billion that they claim a president romney would cut from the program, and romney says, look, you're already doing it as part of your obamacare program, you've already taken that money, but you've taken it from people who are using medicare right now. governor sanford? >> well, let's first off recognize the truth in terms of numbers. it's not a cut when you think about a cut in your family budget, like i had a hundred dollars and now i'm going to have 80. this is a cut over the next ten years in the rate of increase in medicare. first of all i think it's important to get our arms around what we're really talking about. both camps are guilty of whatever this $700 billion cut is, again cut in the increase in medicare and both are ignoring the larger issue of an unsustainable system. you're looking at a 30 trillion liability with medicare overall, you're looking

pollster for president carter, pat caddell, and former pollster for bill clinton, doug schoen. is romney the frontrunner? >>doug: it is moving that way. he has the momentum but we need tuesday night and a good debate performance for that to be confirmed. right now the race is too close to call. >>gregg: pat, the reuters poll came up obama leading romney 59 to 39 among early voters. >> this is an online poll. it is a small number of people but it is being hyped today by a lot news organization who have stopped during -- doing their state polls now that obama is not doing so well. clearly the obama campaign is better organized and we do not know what it means in florida and north carolina, where we know the numbers on absentee ballots and republicans have more than democrats in that situation. >>gregg: now the real clear politics poll average, governor romney is ahead by roughly three points. boy, the trend line was in the opposite direction not long ago. >> what has happened, the first presidential debate is what caused a bigger explosion than that guy breaking the sound barrier. that is
11th this year. doug mckelway joins me live in washington on this. doug, is this the first witness we're going to hear from here? >> reporter: the first witness actually gone on the record, not a anonymous source. a guy came forward to say security was denied there. he is lieutenant colonel andrew word, former head of a special forces team in libya. he told cbs news that his request for beefed up security was rejected in washington. the man who made the call to reject the extra security, undersecretary of state management, patrick kennedy who held the job since 2007. after the attack kennedy privately briefed house and senate staffers told them the attack appeared to be sophisticated involving light and heavy weapons. four days after that briefing, u.s. ambassador to the u.n. susan rice took to five different sunday talk shows to say it was not a planned attack. it was another three days after that, before any senior u.s. official publicly stated that the benghazi incident was indeed a terrorist attack. >> americans deserve the truth on what happened. and so i think what you're going
picture is much more grim than the democrats would like for the public to believe. doug mcelway is live for us in washington and it sounds like the political debate got started with a controversial tweet on twitter from former head of ge, jack welch. >> welch is one of america's most rebe inspected former ceo's. so when he tweets, people tend to listen. within minutes of the jobs report he tweeted quote, unbelievable jobs numbers. this chicago guys will do anything, can't debate so change numbers and facing a torrent of criticism for that. welch stopped by his tweet and those numbers. >> this whole number is made up of a whole mess of an assumptions who is participating and who is not working and who is trying to work, but dropped out. all of these things, it just raises the question, oh, i think there ought to be a good discussion about how this number is calculated. >> and most analysts aren't dismissing his crimsism as utterly without evidence and at the same time pointing out that the jobs numbers reflect an obama policy that has the economy stuck in neutral. >> they had full charge
's go to doug mckelway he is in delaware, resort place, affluent, a lot of big homes there what was the most dramatic thing you saw? >> bill, i would have to say the most dramatic thing i saw was the extreme contrast what we experienced to what people to the north of us experienced. over my shoulder across the delaware bay see the blinking of the new jersey light house as the crow flies that's only 17 miles away from here. a little bit north of that, utter devastation of the kind that jonathan hunt was just talking about. but here, we are on the south eye of that storm's eye. ill defined as it was. we got the back end of the storm, the westerly breezes. last night when the high tide hit at 10:00 p.m. those breezes were blowing westerly. they pushed the storm surge out to sea. everybody here in delaware woke up to houses and cities intact. one of the state authorities who controls beach erosion here said that beach and beach sand and beach dunes are meant to be extendible. the infrastructure behind them is not. go did they evacuate the beach. >> did everybody get out of there. >>
with delaware bay in its sight. let's go to rehoboth. doug, what do you anticipate? >> you last came to us, things have worsened somewhat, geraldo, i don't have an anamometer to measure the wind speed. but i have an unofficial measure. the stinging sensation in your face from the drops, that's the first time i've felt that today and the second thing the waterproof boots i bought at a popular national chain store claiming to be waterproof are sloshing wet and my socks are sloshing around in them. the good news here is that high tide happened at 7:32. the highest wave came to where i'm standing here on the top of this dune and did not go any further. if you walk another ten yards or so over the little fence here, then you get to the boardwalk. and this is high and dry, at least from sea waters. plenty of wet from rain. remarkably i told you we'd show you sound from youngsters that took their boogie boards out at dusk. i called them to come back in to talk to them. >> no one is going to come rescue you if you're taken out. >> that's why we're sticking together. >> if your mom and dad knew you
. back to you guys. >>> thank you, doug. tonight's debate a big talker this morning. we are hearing from the man who helped prepare romney for his primary debate brett o'donnell. o'donnell also preparing john mccain for his debate against president obama. he tells bill o'reilly what mitt romney will need to do in order to come out on top tonight. listen to this. >> the burden in the debate is on the governor, or am i wrong? >> i think you are absolutely right. while the challenger gets elevated by being on the stage with the president clearly the president is on the mountain top. he won the last set of debates. there has to be a compelling reason for change. governor romney has the burden of proof. >> you prepped john mccain for his debate with barack obama. mccain held his own but didn't bring the debate to the president mccain never brought it to him. this guy doesn't know what he is talking about he is talking in generalities but that didn't get through to the electorate who liked obama and still likes obama. >> that is one of the reasons he has to go on offense. >> we will see tonigh
with jobs numbers. doug luzader is live with how this is playing out on the campaign trail. >> good morning. we are going to hear a whole range of topics today. post debate analysis continues. one of the things we will be talking about is the nation's unemployment rate. you see it charted out through the course of the president's administration. where does it head from here that is a big concern for both campaigns. we will have the numbers in about 3 hours. president obama spent more time in swing states yesterday. he visited wisconsin, he will be in virginia today. what we saw is kind of a reinvigorated candidate trying to recover from what many saw as a lackluster performance. >>> the man on stage last night, he does not want to be held accountable for the real mitt romney's decisions and what he has been saying for the last year. that's because he knows full well that we don't want what he has been selling for the last year. governor romney may dance around his positions, but if you want to be president you owe the american people the truth. >> mitt romney also on the campaign trail in v
consulate attack. >> doug luzader thank you so much. it is time to look at who is talking this morning and the first presidential debate a lot of us are talking about this morning. that's what brit hume is calling. >>> this will be a closer race in all likelihood as we get closer to election day. one consensus, an incumbent running with a record like this. with an economy with a recession with all of the trouble he has been having overseas. it is surprising many people that he is ahead. we keep thinking something will happen. mitt romney seems an acceptable enough guy. he is not a great politician a national politician he seems an honorable decent enough man if people were ready to make a change they would not have trouble relying on him as a reliable change agent. we keep waiting for something to cause it to happen. that's why a lot of republicans are down cast in this state. >>> bill o'reilly went on to say if mitt romney does well like ronald reagan did against jimmy carter he can immediately become the frontrunner. all things change because of this. >> an attack left four americans
the country forward. the september jobless rate dropping to 7.8%, it's down from 8.1%. doug mckelway live at the white house with more. doug? >> reporter: hey, jon, these new unemployment numbers obviously coming as tremendously welcome news to an obama campaign that is still reeling from what most now agree was a lackluster debate performance last month. in fairfax, virginia, at george mason university, the president departed from his standard stump speech to tout these new numbers. here he is just moments ago. >> but today's news certainly is not an excuse to try to talk down the economy to score a few political points. it's a reminder that this country has come too far to turn back now. [cheers and applause] because of your strength and resilience, the strength and resilience of the american people, we've made too much progress to return to the policies that led to the crisis in the first place. >> reporter: but behind these apparently encouraging unemployment numbers are some very confusing and conflicting statistics. the number of unemployed dropped 456,000 last month while only 11,0
. we will see it up close and certainly because he is heading to new jersey today. doug luzader is live. >> this is obviously one of the challenges people face on the ground and all of the states have been impacted. both the obama and romney campaigns are having to recalibrate their messages and strange their schedules as they respond to sandy. the president going to new jersey today to get a tour from new jersey governor and frequent obama critic chris christie. he has praised the president's response so far. on the other hand mayor michael bloomberg said no thanks to a drop by. >> i talked to the president today and you talked to his kief of staff today particularly about a trip here. i pointed out we would love to have him but we have things to do. i know he planned a trip to new jersey. i said it's fine it representeds the whole region. >> the white house says they concurred with that decision. yesterday he visited headquarters in washington not technically a campaign stop but a number of times he invoked his campaign seen forward. >> hutilities are going to have to lane forward. we
terror attack. doug laders i washington. >>> the state department last night dropped a bombshell saying they never thought what happened at the compound in libya was part of a spontaneous protest. theionnt whe e seeing is a white house. protd i mmm.ationsirst s snss not clear what if anything she was basing that on. the state department said it wasn't them. according to one official that was not our conclusion. iscosssdyor intoday. >> the thought that it was caused by a video never wouldn't stood scrutiny. i think the hearing will be damaging thiouenth is the fbi investigation continues. >>> looking at the attacks the reason for people in congress being mindful of theact there's ongoing investigation foenvestigation. >>> beyond all that there will be questions about the security at the compound and whether there were warning signs that should have prompted the state depament bfingpecit il th h bonfencal about this last night. they did not invite fox to be a part of that with other members of theedia something the state department later apologized for. royarat i toe aok ahos another talk
for round two of the presidential debate. >> we are live in washington with more. good morning, doug. >> good morning, guys. this one will be different. remember the firs debate two weeks ago. the ex pecpectation going into . this time around there has been a shift. kierding to this poll president obama 41 percent think he will win, 37 percent think mitt romney will win. a prit see even split there. they are putting it on the debate in new york along with the seating for the town hall participants. president obama and mitt romney has been largely off the campaign trail preparing running through one mock debate after another. and the town hall format tonight could make a difference as well with questions coming from uncommitted voters. >> for challenger romney what's at stake is the strong performance he made last time and keep the momentum he has going now. the momentum is swinging in romney's way for obama it's a chance to regain the momentum. >> a lot of that will depend on the questions tonight. who is going to ask the questions? a group of undecided voters that are all selected b
